In My Dance DNA leading choreographers discuss what makes their hearts beat faster

Dance Umbrella, in partnership with The Space, presents a new digital talk series delving into the minds of Britain’s top contemporary choreographers.

My Dance DNA is a series of interviews, filmed in front of a live audience and live streamed online, with five leading UK choreographers - Kate Prince, Siobhan Davies, Akram Khan, Shobana Jeyasingh and Wayne McGregor.

We'll find out all about their inspirations and influences on their work.  Each artists will discuss moments of dance and movement on film that have transfixed and transformed them, as well as the defining pieces in their own back catalogues.

Each edition will be presented by a high-profile artist from another field known personally to the choreographer and will be followed by 15 minutes of audience Q+A.
